One long ‘Thank you’ (Day 458)

True love is really
one long 
      Thank you
it is giving up 
   your ego
           your rights
             your pride
and opening to 
   imagination
         vulnerability
         comfort
—a 10-year-old child 
sitting on a curb
conversing with 
a pale yellow dog
   befuddled
      devoted
         exposed
